Read in English by Lynne Thompson; Denise Nordell; Ellen Preckel; Claire Schreuder; Anna Simon; Katie McClain; WoollyBee; KHand
CLARA VAUGHAN, the young heroine, narrator, and namesake for R. D. Blackmore’s early detective novel, is determined to solve the mystery of her father’s murder—a crime that occurred when she was only 10 years of age. The book gives an account of Clara’s adventures, romances, and encounters with many eccentric characters, when, years later, she devotes herself to unraveling the mystery. As Clara states at the beginning of Chapter II, “How that deed was done, I learned at once, and will tell. By whom and why it was done, I have given my life to learn.” R. D. Blackmore, undoubtedly better known for his later novel LORNA DOONE, published this book anonymously in 1864. (Summary by lubee930)

I just can't wait for part 2
Richard Doddridge Blackmore created a wonderful young Clara Vaughn character(no doubt from his observations of real children). I have never been so amused by a child character with such honest and irascible replies, and actions towards the block headed and week personality adults and children who come in and out of "her society". And such a lovable child to the people whom understood and loved her.
Lynne Thompson read wonderfully the first chapters. And gratitude to all the readers, librivox and IA
